* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'':
** [[spoiler:Sandra does this to her entire town once she fully embraces her demon nature.]] Things get really serious when you realize that she imprisons and ''tortures'' [[spoiler:(at least, mentally) Sam.]]
** After [[spoiler:being turned back (temporarily) into an human again, Sandra]] steals Mabel's thimble from her, just because she can. However, this time, she takes pity on Mabel and gives it back. This is the first sign of humanity she has showed in months.

* Nemen Yi, the Chosen of Battles in ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation''. When she first shows up, her moral status is indeterminate: sure, she's trying to sequester the group's precious artifact, but it had just been stolen by the villains for world-ending purposes. Then, after one of the team gets it back, the Chosen of Battles looks like she's ready to throw down on the group -- until Marena points out that that [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0238.html would be illegal]]. Fortunately, the conundrum of whether we're supposed to sympathize with Nemen Yi or not is solved in the very [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0239.html very next strip]], as she immediately chooses to try and steal the artifact and bait the rest of the group into attacking her first (so she can "defend" herself) by attempting to behead Secret, on the legal technicality that even though she is a defector from team evil and working for the protagonists, she's still an Abyssal {{Exalted}}. Going straight for TheWoobie's neck just to get around a bureaucratic roadblock in your path is what we call "a signal".

* At the end of a ''PennyAndAggie'' storyline, Charisma rants to her illegitimate son's face that he exists to ruin her life, after a series of events he had no control over, in front of her boyfriend. Needless to say, he leaves her soon after.

* In ''CaptainSNES'', Mother Brain (a HarmlessVillain in the show the comic is based on) takes it half-literally by smacking Captain N's dog Duke into a pit filled with [[{{Phlebotinum}} Omega Energy]] just to spite the Captain. This upsets not only her enemies, but also her henchman, King Hippo.

The dramatic effect of this was lessened by her horse easily being able to outrun her, and Angelo getting bored and calling it off. It was still very cruel and unnecessary.
